Courses are taught by instructors recruited from a diverse pool of current and retired faculty, as well as professionals and scholars from local communities.

There are no entrance requirements, tests, or grades; it’s simply learning for the joy of learning. Each classroom environment is meant to foster interdisciplinary exploration, discussion and exchange of ideas.

“The Academy for Lifelong Learning is now entering its third year, and the response has been wonderfully positive. Both instructors and participants seem to be thoroughly enjoying these classes,” said Candi Merrill, director of Operations, Western on the Peninsulas. “We have a great selection of courses this year, with some favorite instructors returning and a few new instructors joining as well.
